Jeff Applegate Memorial

Friends and fellow golfers:

After 18 years of the holding the Jeff Applegate Memorial Golf Tournament we decided that last year (2013) was the last year of the tournament.  Age and health issues caused us to make this decision.

You and others across the 18 years have helped us celebrate Jeff’s life through the tournament and at the same time helped raise money for the Jeff Applegate Memorial Scholarship at the Ohio State University.  The scholarship goes to men majoring in elementary education.  Elementary education was Jeff’s major and although he never got to live his dream to be a 3rd grade teacher the scholarship has helped many young men live their dream to teach young children.

Last year’s tournament raised $17,000 for the scholarship and 6 young men were awarded the scholarship.  We are pleased to announce that for the 2014/15 school year nine (9) scholarships, 6 undergrad and 3 grad, will be awarded.

Many of you have asked how you might still be involved with the scholarship efforts.  If you wish to contribute to the scholarship you may do so online at by clicking here.
